Ubergizmo was a media associate of the Global Online Meetup, Best of MIK Award @ CES 2023, an award that rewards the perfect startups which have already handed a number of drastic picks earlier than arriving at this culminating level.

MIK stands for “Made in Korea” and is a model developed by Aving, a media firm that covers many worldwide shopper electronics occasions. Ubergizmo was requested to pick out three firms primarily based on our pursuits, market expertise, and technical background (Hubert and Eliane are each former recreation builders).

The selection was not straightforward, however our prime 3 firms and merchandise are Narma Inc (#1), SevenPointOne (#2), and BeomJun E&C (#3).

Narma Inc

Narma Inc designs and builds skilled drones for numerous markets, together with safety, surveillance, medical and supply drones. Their tilt-rotor drone was fascinating as a result of it comes with each vertical take-off (VTOL) comfort and fixed-wing endurance, pace, and vary.

It makes use of a VTOL idea just like the well-known Osprey airplane that U.S. Marines use in fight. This environment friendly design makes Narma Inc a direct supply competitor of Google or Amazon.

This firm is a spin-off of the Korea Aerospace Institute and might pack a variety of applied sciences into its merchandise. These drones can fly at evening and past the visible line of sight (BVLOS). At the identical time, they’ll endure excessive wind (50 meters/sec) that many opponents merely can’t.

Finally, the drone is sensible sufficient to satisfy its mission even when the GPS connectivity is misplaced. Its final line of protection is a parachute that may open to stop it from inflicting harm if there’s a crucial failure. That’s an FAA mandate.


SevenPointOne is a digital healthcare firm behind AlzWIN, an utility that makes use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) to assist detect cognitive impairments and dementia very early. As you might know, the sooner such issues are observed and the extra possible it’s doable to sluggish them down and even forestall additional degradations in some instances.

AlzWIN is centered round a patented algorithm that makes use of 20 metrics to carry out its activity. For instance, verbal fluency is without doubt one of the metrics that’s sampled. SevenPointOne has gone via peer critiques, pilot initiatives and medical trials to assist its declare.

Once detected, cognitive impairments might be managed in several methods, and the corporate additionally has Sentents, a digital actuality (VR) app that helps customers with their cognitive efficiency. So far, SevenPointOne has not too long ago labored with hospitals, insurance coverage, and pharmaceutical firms in Asia.

The firm’s scientists estimate about 70 potential causes for dementia, and 30% of those can doubtlessly be handled, whereas others can solely be managed for now. For instance, a poor weight loss program may trigger a quicker descent into dementia. Finally, 91% of US seniors go undiagnosed for dementia, and that’s maybe the perfect motive to have a straightforward, efficient and reasonably priced software.

BeomJun E&C

BeomJun E*C is an organization that produces concrete. On the floor, this hardly looks as if a “high-tech” product, however its concrete has low-carbon traits, which might considerably contribute to assuaging the carbon footprint within the development trade.

This firm makes use of a type of Sulfur Concrete. Such concrete does provide thrilling traits like a really low carbon emission, power, and a comparatively brief time to accumulate its full power.

Sulfur replaces cement because the concrete’s binding agent, and that’s why the carbon footprint is so low. Manufacturing cement is liable for about 5% of worldwide carbon emissions. Sulfur Concrete has been theorized and mentioned for the reason that 70s, so the idea is just not fully new. Instead, it’s its manufacturing and implementation that we’re concerned about.

Using sulfur might be difficult in some ways since sulfur is a component that’s not inert. It can react to different chemical compounds, and it’s powerful to present Sulfur Concrete long-term endurance and security. BeomJun E&C claims to have designed a secure sulfur concrete that’s twice as sturdy as common concrete, with anti-bacterial properties.

Additionally, the sulfur used is a byproduct of current petrochemical processes, and waste car tires are additionally a part of the method, so the uncooked materials is ample. The carbon footprint is decreased by 30%, however this sulfur concrete can be 30% dearer than conventional options. More information and specifications (PDF).

Other firms

The three firms above actually blew our minds away, however others are additionally worthy of point out, together with:

  • Nuvi-labs is an automatic meals scanner ({hardware} and software program) that goals to cut back meals waste worldwide.
  • LiBEST is a versatile Li-ion battery that may be built-in into shopper electronics of recent shapes and varieties, together with VR gloves or smartwatch bands.
  • Margo. A dad initially created a digital baseball pitch coach for his younger son who was struggling to throw a heavy ball. Now it’s a brand new and distinctive product for all.
  • E-MPS, a supplier of batteries for industrial and heavy purposes reminiscent of 5G cell tower tools and industrial BiDirectional inverters.
